Tooting is a district within the London Borough of Wandsworth, in the South of the nation’s capital approximately five miles South of Charing Cross. The area now known as Tooting has been settled since the Anglo-Saxon period, and its name may be derived from Tota, the name of a Saxon chieftain but this explanation is contested. The other major explanation for the name is that it derives from an archaic meaning of the verb to tout, meaning to look out, suggesting that there was once an ancient watchtower in the area.
Whatever the origins of the name, Tooting was definitely already in existence by the time of the Domesday Book in 1086, and then went through two distinct periods of growth with the first coming during the Victorian era and then the second during the 1920s and 1930s. This has led to the area being known as one of 35 major centres in Greater London due to its busy and densely populated nature.
